We have a central Domino server which contains all the mail files. Many our our remote users replicate their mail files into their NT file servers.
We can compact their mail files in the central Domino server but their replica mail files are not compacted.
Is there a way to compact their replica mail files in that NT file server from the central Domino server? No Domino server exists in those NT file servers.
I don't think this could be automated easily. The only way I could see it happening is if you mapped a drive to these file servers from the Domino server and set the program docs to compact those directories. This is a major security no-no. Also, compact program tasks cannot be set for directories. It is either one file or all files. Your maintenance would be overbearing and impossible to handle.
